Implantable neurostimulators for the treatment of epilepsy that are capable of sensing seizures can enable novel therapeutic applications. However, detecting seizures is challenging due to significant intracranial EEG signal variability across patients. In this paper, we illustrate how a machine-learning based, patient-specific seizure detector provides better performance and lower power consumption than a patient non-specific detector using the same seizure library. The machine-learning based architecture was fully implemented in the micropower domain, demonstrating feasibility for an embedded detector in implantable systems.
